Boswell & Warner's Colorific
I never discovered who the original Proprietors of this product were. It was marketed by Funston & Scofield in New York in 1864. They apparently moved to 9 Dey Street around 1865. They were still listing their Depot at that address between 1872 and 75. I found the Colorific listed for sale in 1896, and, according to Fike, it was still being advertised in 1923.
